The winners of the 2021 AA B&B Awards were announced today. With many Britons choosing to stay in the UK for their holidays, the Awards acknowledged all the hard work of the teams behind some ‘outstanding’ B&Bs. The B&Bs Awards have been given out for 25 years.
Simon Numphud, Managing Director at AA Media said: “For a quarter of a century these awards have championed the exceptional standards of hospitality and accommodation offered by the UK’s B&Bs.
“This year’s winners continue to demonstrate the incredible hard work and dedication these establishments put into providing outstanding guest stays.”
This year’s winners are scattered all around the UK.

An AA inspector reviewed the B&B and said: “A hidden gem with friendly, professional staff.
“It’s off the beaten track near the spa town of Harrogate.”
The B&B also serves award-winning food in its restaurant.
On Tripadvisor, Louise I wrote: “What an absolute gem.”
While Davey said: “Everything lived up to our expectations. The service could not be faulted.”
And reviewer Lancashiresweetpea said: “We discovered by chance and have stayed four or five times in a year. The service and attention to detail cannot be improved.”
AA Inn of the Year was given to The Impeccable Pig in County Durham.
Fran A reviewed the Inn on Tripadvisor and said: We stayed in the “pig might fly” room for our anniversary and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.
“The room is beautifully decorated and luxurious with an enormous bed and bath big enough for two people to stretch out.
“We also had dinner in the restaurant, a three-course meal and drinks and the food was delicious. Had breakfast delivered to our room and again the food was delicious. Every staff member was lovely and helpful, excellent service.”
AA Restaurant with Rooms of the Year was The Hare Restaurant with Rooms in North Yorkshire.
The restaurant is also in the Michelin Guide and is a must for British foodies.
Linda R said on Tripadvisor: “We absolutely loved every single mouthful and would be hard-pushed to name a favourite. Notably, as a person who doesn’t like puddings, I can say, hand on heart, that he creates the best ‘sweets’ I have ever eaten!
“Will be back as soon as we can snag a vacant table!”
And Shona Harper wrote: Fine dining at its best. Each bite of food was perfection.
“We were lucky to stay overnight in Dennison room. Super comfortable and great attention to detail. I look forward to returning.”

On Tripadvisor, Gill O said: “This is an amazing B&B. The rooms are amazing we have stayed twice.”
Margaret S, meanwhile, wrote: “We have stayed here on a few occasions. It is such a treat and breakfast is to die for.”

Peter G wrote on Tripadvisor: “Fabulous location with stunning views.
